Does everyone get a spanking from their future mother-in-law? Or was it just me? ;)

I have 25 years’ worth of memories. Thank you for raising up the man that I love and for accepting me into your family fully and with no hesitations (even though I couldn’t even cook spaghetti back then). Rest easy.

She always had an open door and took me in and fed me when I had nowhere else to go. She always showed love to us and would tell you what you needed to do to get back on track. You will always be loved and missed.
